REACH South Africa (The Church of England in South Africa) mourns and is deeply saddened by the passing away of our former President, Mr Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. We thank God for his remarkable life, iconic leadership and humble example of forgiveness and generosity. He was truly a great man who worked tirelessly against injustice for a non-racial democratic South Africa in which all its people could enjoy freedom and equal opportunity. May his legacy triumph!

Nelson Mandela was a man devoted to his people and his country. “Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father.” President Jacob Zuma

We extend our sincere condolences to the Mandela Family.

Nkosi sikelel’ iAfrika.
